Chocolate Malt Pudding

Diva Entertains Chocolate Malted Pudding

My husband loves a good milkshake.  And its all because of the ‘malt’ powder.  So when I started making desserts with malt in them (see Chocolate Malted Cookies) he was in heaven.  I recently came across a recipe for Chocolate Malt Pudding  and decided I had to give it a try.  The recipe did not disappoint!  Great chocolate malt taste with a velvety texture.  If you’ve never made homemade chocolate pudding (see Homemade Dark Chocolate Pudding) you are in for a real treat.  Not only does the homemade stuff far surpass anything store bought – but it is EASY to make!  Aside from a few minutes of constant stirring there’s nothing to it!

Chocolate Malted Pudding (adapted from Taste of Home magaine, April/May 2010)

Serves 6 (or 4 generously)

  • 1/2 cup malted milk powder (NOT the chocolate powder)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp. instant espresso powder*
  • 2 cups milk (fat-free, 1% or whole)
  • 2 oz. semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • whipped cream, to serve
  • malted milk balls, chopped (for decoration)
  1. In a small saucepan, combine the first five ingredients (through cornstarch).  Whisk in milk until smooth.
  2. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil.  Cook 1 minute longer, stirring constantly.
  3. Remove the heat and stir in the chocolate and vanilla until smooth.
  4. Transfer to dessert dishes.  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving.
  5. To serve, garnish  each serving with whipped cream and chopped malted milk balls.

*Espresso/coffee deepens the chocolate taste.  However, if you don’t have any and you’d prefer not to purchase it you can just leave it out.
